What does "CCW" stand for?

CCW stands for Counter ClockWise.

hi,
Cleaning small icons per hand after resizeing to keep the quality is imho a must do.
I set the background to transparent and cleaned the small 16x16, look at the difference:

Why did you feel the need to release it 'all rights reserved'?

It would be much better if you could release it under a free license, preferably the GPL, which I believe the standard KDE icon sets use?

Actually, there is no license specified. But, don't mistake a copyright and a license.

Most GPL software contains a copyright notice in the source code. That doesn't mean that you don't have a license to use it.

In this case, this is a registered trademark of KDE so you can only use it with KDE. I don't see this as a problem.

Hope it makes it into official KDE.

Go view the in use screenshot at kde-artists.org. I originally thought this one was better, but after seeing it in use, I would like the other one. http://kde-artists.org/main/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,48/expv,0/topic,441.0

I just wanted to say how neat this is, and it looks very good.

I'd suggest trying to get this into 3.5, cause its not really a feature, just graphics :) Plus, I don't think the current one has svg's, but I'm assuming yours does.

I agree, this one looks really good. It would be better if it was "crystalized", though ;-)

There's only thing I'd like to suggest: it would look even better if the background wasn't black but transparent.

A background other than Black might be better but since there is a frame around the Animated Icon, using transparent doesn't work like it does with other toolbar icons.

All other Throbbers for Konqueror which I have looked at have a background color.

Perhas using the same color blue would look better.

I have checked and found I guessed right, whether there is a frame or not depends on the style used. Baghira for example does not have a frame around the throbber.

I still think it would be a good idea to have the background transparent. A dark background doesn't look very good with light color schemes and vice versa.

Well, maybe this is something depending on the used style? At the moment I'm using a throbber with transparent background, and I don't see a frame around it.

It looks way better than the other throbbers with background color, more... "integrated" is what I would call it.

Yes, you are correct, this is widget style dependent.

This was designed to work with all styles, but perhaps a throbber for specific styles might be a good idea.

As I said, I will do the Crystal as well as soon as I find a way around the bug in InkScape 0.42. I don't think that SodiPodi has the problem so maybe next week.

I dont usually comment, but I wanted to agree here. This is a great icon. I'd been really annoyed for a while now at the animated icon that my icon theme has, so this is a great improvement and really ought to be included in kde 3.5

Thanks!

Before someone asks why I didn't make Crystal style ones.

I was going to but I found a bug in the way that InkScape 0.42 handles gradients that causes serious problems. :-(

So use Karbon14 instead. :-)
